The All Year Round Carrot 

 

SOW OUTDOORS - February-August thinly ½in (1cm) deep in shallow pre-watered drills, in soil that hasn''t been manured in the last 12 months. Keep soil moist at all times. (Protect early sowings with cloche or fleece).  

THIN OUT - 2-3in (5-8cm) apart. Avoid crushing the leaves as the scent attracts carrot root fly.
